Northcoast Studios hauled a whole bunch of stuff to the Guild for their work on the flies. This morning, they put up a second scaffold.

And, finally, all that’s left of the Cheaper by the Dozen set, Mary Beth Oravec’s painting of a house. Snow will be added to the picture and it will be seen through a window in the set for The Mousetrap.
